Abstract Swan, by Christina.
I miss Christina. She's a dear friend, originally from Melbourne, and now in Holland. As well as taking gorgeous pictures, she's a talented botanist, and one of the sweetest people I know. She's also the person who, when I was complaining about the problems of crutches in the rain, found me my miracle poncho (it's actually a Dutch design for bike riders, but it works well for cripples, too) - and replaced it when some bastard stole it.
She says: "The picture is of a swan on a lake near my old house in Enschede. I just loved the feathers against the dark water. I like taking photos of things where it takes a little while to figure out what it is if you don't have any information. "
